Homeless At Foggy Bottom

Homeless
The homeless situation in Washington D.C. (as in other big cities in the U.S.) is horrible and tragic. 

 
The homeless person here is wrapped in a blanket trying to stay warm on her wheelchair. 
 
Further, her bucket, at her feet, for people to give is empty. 
 
The Thanksgiving holiday is this week, but where is the thanks and where is the giving?
 
Interesting…halfway down the block is GW Hospital and across the street behind this lady is a gorgeous, modern, brand new GW University engineering and science building (almost completed now). 
 
The haves, the have mores, and the have nots. 
 
Where are all the trillions of dollars of spending going..,that we can’t feed, clothe, shelter, and educate our people. 
 
We need to do better as a society for providing care for the truly needy.
 
G-d is watching what we do and what we don’t do.
 
Our test, and the test of our elected officials/leadership–will we/they stand up for those that can’t?
